Another relatively painless Forzathon... only made slightly painful by using a controller rather than the Wheel and pedals...

Custom 1 Lap BP race in Nissan GTR Black Edition HE (only that car allowed for Drivatars) around Coober Pedy Scramble for 3 Wheelspins 35Kx2 50Kx2 and Jag E-type S1 Sold back for 75K

Honda S800 drifting along Highway while using a Skill Perk for the Skill Song 25K Cr and 25K XP at the same time

Nissan GTR Black Edition HE at timber mill for the Barrel Rolls to get the HE Car...

Reminder tips to ensure Achievements and gifts are unlocked:

1) Go to your Settings menu for HUD and make sure Notifications are turned On.
2) If you are playing on PC, make sure you have not disabled Connected User Experiences and Telemetry setting.
3) Reboot now - hold the power button on your console until it shuts off. Also reboot any Win10 computers connected to the same router.
4) Use the dashboard Achievement tracker to see if you are progressing through # requirements, or use a Bucket List with skills requirement.
5) Reboot again if you see an Achievement but no gift.
6) Make sure you are reading the requirements correctly, and ask the community for tips on proper execution:

I spent an hour and a half performing over 30 barrel rolls in the '94 Nissan Silvia K's as soon as the Forzathon went live. Not one of them was counted. Won a bounty race in it as well and that didn't count either. Good to know there's a way to track the progress; would've saved me a lot of wasted time. "Perform 15 barrel rolls in a Nissan" really should mean ALL the Nissans.

had some issue with the Barrel Rolls, tried a few different Nissans and the only one that would register them for me was the GT-R Black HE. Did it up at the Construction yard in about 5 minutes (Once I got the right car that is). others were simple & easy.

So after trying for 20 minutes to get the barrel rolls challenge in the Kenmeri Skyline, I switched to the 240Z and got it done in 5 minutes.

Wish they'd test the challenges properly, or at least tell us which cars aren't going to be eligible for the challenges.

Confirmed no progress gained for new nissan nismo dlc car. Over 20 barrel rolls completed and skill chains banked with o% sushi roll progress. That sucks cause the car is classified under nissan. Will try another car.

Probably best to avoid using DLC cars for challenges.

Thanks for the tips Max. What if the achievement progress shows 100% but is still locked. The cherry blossom achievement is like that for me. I have tried a few cars, the steps above and it wont unlock. I am wondering if its because I completed it in the Nismo while trying for the barrel rolls. That car didn't show any progress towards the barrel rolls but, I went from 0 to 100% for cherry blossom.



Any other suggestions?

When Challenges show 'Complete' but no reward you can try (in order of least impact to most):

1) Waiting... it may be a service delay
2) Try completing another event to trigger the event send/receipt
3) Terminate and Restart the game
4) Restart the Console

Sushi Roll challenge was fun once you find a Nissan that is actually elegible. Seems there are a fair few that don't work. Nice to have a bit of a tricky forzathon event for a change. Have every HE car barring the Dart now. Chuffed!

In the case of the Sushi Roll challenge, it is not broken as you can and you did manage to complete it.

Ever consider that there might just be a reason for why some cars can't be used for certain challenges? Like maybe they want people to use cars that are less used in the game, or maybe they chose those cars to leave out as it would give people an unfair advantage?

This is just my perspective as a gamer.


I would say it is broken and i found a way to fix it.

I did consider maybe only some nissans but they said a nissan, not some nissans.

And yeah i guessed your a gamer since your in a game forum and playing a game.


They should still test their product before releasing it.
This is my perspective as a customer.

#Forzathon Sushi Roll
Perform 15 Barrel Roll Skills in a Nissan to win the Nissan Silvia HE

It should read perform 15 barrel roll skills in an unknown nissan (you work it out by trial and error). then point 6 would be relevant.
That would be the major complaint this time round - again they did not test it properly and left us to pick up the pieces.
